NOTES FROM THE CALL:
Powerful teams are built on authenticity and the willingness to listen and be open. A major principle of powerful teams is that they must be a functioning with high integrity. This means that they are not settling for less than what they know they deserve in team relationships. Every person on the team asks for what they want and need from others. Each person speaking their truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. And they behave in ways that are in harmony with their personal values. All decisions and choices are made only after full and complete conversation, and they are made with the knowledge that the best decision has been made for moving forward.
You are craving this kind of teamwork! Working with the kind of team that works together to create a unified, creative group that moves forward “as if they are one entity, connected in trust, common purpose, and results”. Rarely do we find that type of culture, but I’m willing to take on the challenge to change that – how about you?
Here’s what you are going to learn on this revealing and sizzling hot call:
• Discover the one thing that creates the foundation for teams to create phenomenal results.
• The exact strategies necessary for Building Powerful Teams.
• How to make it easy and FUN to be a leader on any team in which you participate.
